Text: Isaiah 1:19-20
THEME: OBEDIENCE IS BETTER THAN SACRIFICE
“lf they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. 12 But if they obey not, they shall perish by the sword, and they shall die without knowledge. “(Job 36:11-12)
Many people are going through serious suffering in life because they have vehemently refused to serve God. They have held tenaciously unto traditional and cultural practices and beliefs and other forms of activities that promote the work of the devil including worldliness. As a result, they are on the verge of death and hell.
On the other hand, if the people serve God, they shall spend their days in prosperity and their years in pleasure. The bible insists that because God is a Spirit, those that serve Him must do so in spirit and in truth. Therefore, serving God is not by paying lip-service or serving Him in disobedience if you are really keen on reaping the benefits therein.
Do you obey and serve God? The answer to this question is crucial to what becomes of the years ahead of you. If not, you must make up your mind today to obey and serve Him so that you will be qualified for the prosperity on offer. The opportunity is still very much available.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Any evil spirit working against God’s prosperity in my life; come under the judgment of God, in Jesus’ name.
2. O God, put my case in the mouth of our G. O., and as he mentions it, let heaven back it up in Jesus’ name.
3. O God I pray: Let the spirit of obedience through the messages of salvation from the altar of The Lord’s Chosen, possess me, in Jesus’ name.
4. Father, give our G. O and our mummy in the Lord the full concentration to follow you with all obedience. Uproot every distraction and discouragement targeted against them, in Jesus’ name.
